Dartington International Summer School & Festival takes place for four weeks during August where we welcome a vibrant community of musicians and music-lovers drawn from all corners of the globe.
We offer a wide range of courses, embracing a huge range of instruments, genres and periods including Early Music, Folk, Jazz, opera, multimedia and writing. Dartington welcomes everyone who wants to enjoy music, from conservatoire students and professionals who wish to work at their craft intensively, to those taking their first tentative steps to becoming musicians, whatever their age. Take workshops with world class musicians, join a choir or just sit back and observe.
There are up to three concerts each night, including our magical late night series. Every evening you can enjoy performances by world famous musicians in the beautiful setting of Dartington's wonderful grounds. Come and join us!
Our Artistic Director, Joanna MacGregor is Head of Piano at the Royal Academy of Music and Professor of the University of London.
